Manchester United 1 FC Rostov 0

The score was 0-0 at the time of Pogba's exit and United went on to win 1-0 courtesy of Juan Mata's 70th-minute goal, completing a 2-1 aggregate victory that sent them into the quarter-finals. It was a move started and finished by Mata, who nicked the ball off Rostov in midfield and helped it out to Mkhitaryan, whose low cross found the Spaniard at the back stick via a flick from Ibrahimović.

Paul Pogba was forced to leave the pitch after the Manchester United midfielder picked up an injury against Rostov.

"A lot of people might say we should have scored more goals".

Mkhitaryan had one of United's best chances in front of goal when a neat interchange between Ibrahimovic and Mata saw the Spaniard pick out his Armenian team-mate one on one with Medvedev.

The Armenian nearly got his revenge shortly after, but he clipped a delicate effort agonisingly wide of the left-hand upright after another fine Mata pass.

"All the five teams in front of us in the Premier League, nobody has worldwide football so will be playing one match per week like some of them have been all season".

Numerous wildfires are burning in Oklahoma and evacuations have been ordered in several counties in the state's northwest. The survivors remember the suddenness of what came upon them: wind, flying sand, the sky glowing suddenly red.

The same pattern resumed with the Reds in complete control of proceedings but Rostov nearly took a surprise lead when dangerman Sardar Azmoun struck a fierce effort from the edge of the box which Sergio Romero repelled before the keeper fielded another shot from Miha Mevlja.

But just a few minutes later and Mourinho's men were attacking down the other end, with Antonio Valencia swinging a cross into the box that Ibrahimovic could only head over the bar. United made a change themselves after Phil Jones replaced Blind, following an elbow to the head.

That was until the 70th minute, when United finally took the lead.

Pogba departed in the 47th minute, Marouane Fellaini taking his place, and Rostov briefly threatened to take the upper hand, Sergio Romero saving from Sardar Azmoun and Christian Noboa.
